This is La Cumparsita:
This shawl is for my friend Marietta who put in a special request after seeing the Spring Trellis Shawl. (She doesn't know how that shawl drove me crazy with it's nupps and the hairiness of the yarn!). Still, in the name of destashing, I was happy to comply with her wish for a shawl.
Part of Marietta's request for the shawl she wanted was the color, and her #3 color request was teal. Well ... if you dim the lights, close one eye and tell people it's teal, then it is. Right? People have to believe what you tell them, don't they? What color does it look to you?
That said, the shawl is done, it's pretty and soft, the pattern repeats were easy to memorize and the end result is stunning. I'm just glad I didn't use sock yarn, although if I'd have had my druthers, I would have made this shawl with some tone-on-tone or muted colors.
Sarah's Yarns, 2 ply Mongolian cashmere
US #6 needles, approximately 500 yards
Pattern: easy, it practically flew off the needles
Next up: the Swallowtail which I started yesterday and I've only got 23 rows to go before finishing. Yay!
